I have a dvd player and a cable box but nothing comes up on the tv as it wont let me see to change the input
Expert:  Shahid replied 14 days ago.

I understand, black screen shows nothing.

Have you tried to unplug TV power cord form wall outlet for 10 minutes to reset, replug back in, switch On the TV.

Does screen glow and show any thing?

Please reply back with the result or we will try next step.

It did nothing only the power light is on
Expert:  Shahid replied 14 days ago.

OK, do you have sound from TV internal speakers?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
No sound but not even sure if its on any channel as I cant see
Expert:  Shahid replied 14 days ago.

OK, lets try next step. Please unplug TV power cord for 5 minutes.

While holding down the “VOL Down” and “INPUT” keys at a time, plug in the AC cord of the TV to turn on the power.

Does screen glow and letter K appears?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
I have already tried that
Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Not for 5 minutes tho
Expert:  Shahid replied 14 days ago.

OK, try it again and give 5 minutes to leave power cord unplugged.

Hello
Expert:  Shahid replied 14 days ago.

Sorry for delayed reply, I was away from computer.

Expert:  Shahid replied 14 days ago.

So screen is still dark, power light is On and solid, correct?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Expert:  Shahid replied 14 days ago.

OK, I'm working on it, give me 5 minutes and meanwhile please reconfirm your TV model as there is a Zero missing in model number.

LC-70c660u you posted in opening question whereas it should be LC-70C6600U

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
it's the last one with 2 0's
Expert:  Shahid replied 14 days ago.

Thanks, ***** ***** has builtin self diagnostic feature that can detect various issues related to power or backlight or ICs on main board except the main controller chip and present the error code by flashing the power light in specific sequences/ times.

Now power light stays On but no picture or sound in TV indicates that it is problem with main controlled chip of main board as we have tried all possible ways to get the error code to working the TV but nothing worked so it seems you would need to replace the main board of TV to resolve the problem.

If it was power board issue or t-con board problem then TV power light would have flashing. Please check with following board supplier to get identical replacement main board for this TV if you have plan to do it yourself..

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue.
I trust my input will help you out to make decision about this TV repair or invest that money on new replacement TV.
